      I'll bet that track was not in great shape? Where is this engine today?

      :D

      I e-mailed Indiana Railway Museum about the engine but haven't got any response yet.
      The track really wasn't that bad, Milwaukee used this interchange to NYC until about 1966.

      I was trying to remember when the Milw cut that line back to the Bedford area. Nothing comes into mind.

      The line from Seymour to Westport was abandoned mid-sixties. Bedford - Seymour lasted until late seventies I think. My wife and I hitched a ride to Seymour and back about '75. The only business they had then was interchange with the B&O, 2 - 3 times a week.
      BTW, Milwaukee Depot at Seymour still standing.

      Do you have a photo of Seymour depot? Did it have board and batten siding?

      :D

      No picture, I'll take one when I get up that way.
      Yeah, typical RR style.
